Bills CB Norman on IR, to miss at least 3 games
The Buffalo Bills put cornerback Josh Norman on injured reserve Saturday due to an ailing left hamstring, meaning he will miss at least the first three games.
Norman did not practice all week as he continues to rehab an injury sustained last month during training camp.
Norman, 32, signed a one-year, $6 million deal with the Bills as a free agent during the offseason.
He has 14 career interceptions in 111 games (92 starts) over eight seasons with Carolina (2012-15) and Washington (2016-19). He was a Pro Bowl and All-Pro selection in 2015 with the Panthers when he intercepted four passes and returned two of them for touchdowns.
When the Bills open the season at home Sunday afternoon against the New York Jets, Levi Wallace is expected to start in Norman’s absence alongside All-Pro cornerback Tre’Davious White.
Wallace, 25, had been nursing a hamstring injury. Undrafted out of Alabama in 2018, he started all 16 games for Buffalo in 2019 and tallied 76 tackles, nine passes defensed and two interceptions.
